He always wanted to be a cop. “I told my parents I wanted to be a police officer,” recalled Lt. Jim Ostojic. “Even since I was a child, I use to play and watch all the cops shows, like ‘Chips’ and stuff like that.”

He’s participating in the Mr. Central Florida campaign, an annual fundraiser for the Speech and Hearing Center.

“My daughter got tubes in her ears when she was younger and her friend actually used the Speech and Hearing [Center] services and that’s why it’s important to me because I saw what it has done for him,” Ostojic said.


Lt. Ostojic has already raised more than $30,000. “I feel, as a law enforcement officer, that we help the children of the community because that’s what we do every day when we go out there and make contact with them,” he said.

Everyone is supporting Lt. Ostojic for this wonderful initiative. Records show he donated more than 150 hours of his own time for this campaign.
